When Ross resident Kelly Brennan says she “hit the ground running” Monday on her first day with WTAE Channel 4 Action News, she means that almost literally.

“With Hurricane Sandy in the mix, this is sure to make for a busy few days during my first week,” says Brennan, who was announced Friday as a new general assignment reporter for Pittsburgh's ABC affiliate.

The hiring gives the Pittsburgh market two sisters working full-time in television. Courtney Brennan is in her third year with WPXI as Westmoreland County bureau chief.

Kelly, who had been a reporter for WOWK, in Huntington, W.Va., returned to Pittsburgh in May to broaden her experiences in the field, filling in for the summer as a general assignment reporter at WPXI.

“Since I started college at Ohio University, I had always hoped one day to report in my hometown. I wasn't sure how or when I would get there, but I'm glad the opportunity has presented itself,” she says.

As for the possibility of perhaps having to now compete against her sister, Brennan says, “True to her role as big sister, Courtney supports me in everything I do. We're thrilled to both be in Pittsburgh now at the same time. Finally, Thanksgiving and Christmas will feel complete.”
